Confused about speed checker terms

Using the speed checker the download speed recorded on my setup was ‘6936 kbps (867kB/s)’. What is the difference between ‘kbps’ and ‘kB/s’ please?
A subsequent check yielded the result ‘129738 kbps (16.2MB/s)’. This I understand, but ‘kB/s’ is a mystery to me.

Re: Confused about speed checker terms

b = bits
B = bytes
8 bits = 1 byte
